About this document

Nothing is more frustrating than people who don't pay what they owe. Sending a letter of demand gives you an easy way to get your money back; it is a formal letter to advise your customer that they need to pay their debt by a certain date or you will begin a formal debt collection process with a collection agency or lawyer. Normally it’s a good enough kick to get them moving without having to resort to a debt collector!

Many businesses wait until 90 days have passed before sending a formal Letter of Demand. It's common practice to send a 'friendly reminder' before sending a formal Letter of Demand.
